Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandfather's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Vegas doesn't fix their impending water problem it won't matter anyway because the whole city will be dead. Of course the Raiders would be the perfect team for that kind of a clusterfuck.

Comment 29 Jan 2016

Hopefully he can help us combat all the anti-recruiting that seems to be going on against us. Don't think we'll snatch anyone out of Louisiana (Lawrence was about as close as we'll come) but I have faith he'll help us get some really good players.

1. Cal Ripken's Consecutive Games Played Streak - With people taking days off and injuries you'll never see anyone even come close to this.

2. Cy Young's Career Wins record - We'll be lucky if we see another 300-game winner again let alone a 400 or 500-game winner.

3. Nicklaus' Major Championship record - If Tiger in his prime couldn't top it who could?

4. Gretzky's Points record - See above

5. Pete Rose's career hits record - See above

Jefferson Airplane was one of my late mother's favorite groups so naturally they're going to have a special place in my heart. Their overnight performance at Woodstock is legendary. RIP Paul.

Comment 29 Jan 2016

I have zero doubt the kid has talent and it appears he's getting his head in the right place. The question is can we use him effectively? I hope he can make an impact this fall but I am guessing he does well in 2016 then in 2017 is when he really blows up as he'll have 3 full years in the program as a WR.

Comment 28 Jan 2016

I was 13 and in the 7th grade. I remember everyone in our school tuned in to watch it, mostly because there was another teacher aboard who had trained to go into space for that flight. For any other teacher that's a pretty big deal. When the shuttle exploded I remember specifically several of my school's teachers crying hysterically. I will never forget that day.

Comment 26 Jan 2016

JFK is the only conspiracy that has left me feeling uneasy. The evidence is just too messed up.

We landed on the moon. As it was said above the Soviets would have LOVED to have embarrassed the US and catch us lying. They had the technology to find out for sure.

One I find kinda interesting is the one about The Illuminati killing Stanley Kubrick for depicting one of their rituals in the movie Eyes Wide Shut. If you watch the movie the ritual does seem unsettlingly realistic. That's just me though.

Meyer is 50-4 at Ohio State and if you're not happy with 50-4 you're incapable of being happy.

I feel better about those 4 losses coming against well-coached Power 5 teams than NIU that's for damned sure. Cough, cough, Appalachian State-TTUN, cough, cough.

It might be worth a reporter mentioning this to Urban during the next presser. Will Urban listen? Probably not. Will I hate him for it if he doesn't? Nope.

Comment 20 Jan 2016

It will be fun until we lose more than once. We drop 2 or even 3 games people will be #FireEveryone just like they do to Coach Matta and the hoops team. People forget that we have a LOT of youth coming through and we are going to continue to get younger as more and more players enter the draft early. The question is can the youth uphold the enormous expectations usually placed upon seniors? We will see. I personally just want us to play hard and represent well, but to some fans that wont be enough and that isn't fair OR fun.

Comment 15 Jan 2016

People quickly dismiss Stephen Collier but they forget he was an early enrollee and has 2 years in the program already. If Burrow comes out and is lights out in the Spring Game I might think differently but until then Collier will be the backup. And that is not a bad thing. The kid can play.

Comment 13 Jan 2016

I agree, the beaches, especially the St. Augustine beaches are where it's at. I just hate getting out of work after 9pm in downtown Jax and the only place to eat is the hotel. I live in Tampa and downtown Tampa is almost as bad when the Lightning don't play. Everything is geared for the lunch crowd.

Comment 13 Jan 2016

That's about the only thing the city has going for it. I work in downtown Jax often and its downtown area is one of the biggest ghost towns of a mid to major city you will ever see. How that town hosted the Super Bowl is beyond me. There's nothing going on.

Comment 13 Jan 2016

Gotta love Rutgers. They always seem to come along on the schedule when the Buckeyes (football or basketball) need a confidence booster. I expect a rout tonight.

Comment 13 Jan 2016

I guess what puzzles and bothers me so much is the fact that listening to Avery speak makes me think he is not the most intelligent person in the world. My dad was a HS special education teacher for 40 years and this guy would've likely been a student of his. Yet the attempted coverup of the murder and the fact it left the possibility of reasonable doubt with suggests it was carried out by someone with enough intellect to foresee that. So does that mean Avery is really some kind of secret genius? Or was there really a frame job by the police? Both scenarios leave me feeling unsettled.
